Church Street will close to traffic at the intersection with Route 50 beginning at 7 a.m. Monday continuously through 10 p.m. Saturday, September 17. Crews will conduct roadway reconstruction work. Church Street traffic will be detoured.

The work is part of the $10.78 million improvement project that will widen the structure over Chartiers Creek to seven lanes using Accelerated Bridge Construction.  Additionally, an exclusive lane from southbound Washington Pike to northbound I-79 will be constructed, widening work will occur on the northbound I-79 on-ramp, and Chartiers Street will be widened to include a turning lane. The project began in 2021 with utility relocation work and is anticipated to conclude in late 2022. During the 2022 construction season, the bridge will be closed for three extended weekends and a 10-day closure of Chartiers Street will be required. Information will be provided in advance of all closures.

The Joseph B. Fay Company is the prime contractor.
